Python functions can return different values, objects, and types. So Python functions can return tuples without a problem. What makes returning a tuple from a function is popular than returning the types is multiple values or objects can be returned by using a tuple.
Returning Single Value with Tuple
The tuple type can be used to return a single value even it is not so popular.
def myfun(): name = ("name") return name t = myfun()
Returning Multiple Values with Tuple
The tuple is popularly used to return multiple values from a function. We can create a tuple to return two or more values from a function. The tuple can be created at the return statement line where returned values are separated with a comma.
def myfun(): return "ismail","baydan",35 t = myfun() print(t)
Returning Multiple Values with Existing Tuple
Another way to return a tuple from a function is by creating a tuple variable or object before returning it with the return statement.
def myfun(): t = ("ismail","baydan",35) return t myt = myfun() print(myt)
Assign Returned Tuple To Multiple Variables
Another powerful feature of returning a tuple from a function is the ability to assign every tuple item into a separate variable. In the following example, we will return a tuple that contains name, surname, and age information and assign this information to different variables.
def myfun(): return "ismail","baydan",35 name,surname,age = myfun() print(name," ",surname," ",age)
